The content of the book itself is great. I had to buy it for a college course, but found it useful in that it provides a lot of good background information about each play. I was really disappointed, because I purchased it used, paid nearly $80 for it, and yet the book was in pretty rough shape. Even with Amazon's great trade-in program there's no way I'm getting near that out of it. I'm just going to keep it, because at least the content is worthwhile.
